Obama's Drift into Shame

If Obama called for change during the campaign, maybe Nancy Pelosi's smirk saying essntially that campaign promises are just the useless lies that most have always thought them, confirms that Obma is just another "Chicago Style" politician. Change meant not the change of heart and style most assumed, but just a change of sides in a shameless battle. As in Chicago, one can ask is someone getting a bribe or cut of all political deals, and the answer is always yes. The only thing that changes is who gets the cut or deal. Many assumed Obama was above that. He is not. That is fully clear. Change to Obama is that his people get the deals, not that the country emerges from its interanl strife. He must have deeply misunderstood Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you, Ask what you can do for your country." Obama is more "Ask what your country can do for you while you think of what to ask for next." Obama's has failed, or lied, concerning his goals for the country and his term. An honorable man, which many thought he was, he is not. He should step down from the office before he shames it and himself more.

American Idol Review

The loss of Kelly struck an amazingly hard blow at the whole show. The gang has never felt like watching less since the second or third show of the whole series when they began watching. The March 16 show was one, if not the, worst show of the entire saga. Of course they featured the music of what they thought was that great bubble gum/lullaby band The Rolling Stones. I doubt most of them had ever listened to the Stones. Siobhan and Paige were the two standouts who had heard of the Stones, stretching to a total of maybe four who had, but the rest were absolute crap. Urban was the low. Did he even understand the meaning of the words? It made him look like a psychotic idiot. It was the worst Idol the gang had ever seen. To call it crap is unfair to other crap.
